ROBERT LEE â€” When Robert Leeâ€™s Foster Allen caught a 6-yard pass from Justin Gartman to give the Steers a 16-14 lead over defending state champion Garden City, the emotion and excitement was clear on their sideline.
But the composure and calmness was evident on Garden Cityâ€™s sideline.
Thanks to key picks, big runs from Josh Colunga and a stout second-half defensive performance, the Bearkats fought off an early rally from Robert Lee to thump the Steers 66-20 in bi-district playoff action Thursday in Robert Lee.
COAHOMA â€” Coahoma head coach Trey Gardner describes playoff time like some children describe their favorite holiday.
After all, he has said making it to the playoffs is like Christmas coming early for him.
But the Bulldogs are hoping the joy doesnâ€™t end so soon when they take on Spearman in bi-district playoff action at 8 p.m. today in Plainview.
Coahomaâ€™s last appearance in the playoffs was in 2007, but their last win was in 2003.
STANTON â€” The playoffs were already in hand, but Stanton didnâ€™t want to end the season with a loss at Anson. It looked like the Buffaloes were going to have to abort that plan, down 15 at halftime.
The Buffs never wavered though, scoring 36 unanswered points in the second half to win in Week 10.
LENORAH â€” Things are already tough for Grady as the bi-district round of the UIL state football playoffs begin.
The 10-0 Ira Bulldogs will aim to end the Wildcats' playoff run immediately at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Memorial Stadium here in Big Spring.
Sounds like a tall order for the Wildcats to knock off a team that hasn't lost all season, but head coach Brad Cox isn't rattled by the thought of facing an undefeated team to start the playoffs.
He and the Wildcats are excited and, honestly, accustomed to having to beat the odds.
